EDUCATION

The MA Performance Practices  at the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES is a two-year, high-intensity, low-residency programme. It is a course for artists with a curiosity for learning, a spirit of experimentation, and an ambition to grow, who are committed to artistic research as a life-long practice in dialogue with peers and audience. Focusing on the students' research, the programme’s post-humanist affinities guide the students to engage practically in their performance making with the notions of care, hospitality of otherness and ecological thinking.

The course offers five specialisations: Choreography, Theatre Practices, Performance Art, De-disciplined Body and Digital Performances. HOME's de-disciplined curriculum complements the fluid nature of performance by allowing students to study with students from all specialisations and even other departments within ArtEZ Unviersity of the Arts and engage with lecturers, tutors, supervisors and mentors both within and beyond HOME as suits their individual practices

STRUCTURE

 

The curriculum is  designed to allow for a thoughtful progression, integration and consistency of those skills needed for an ethically and ecologically geared artistic research within the required competencies and learning objectives that come with our status as a fully accredited Master's Degree.

All students of all specialisations need to follow 75 credits of core modules and 45 credits of their specialisation modules (see below).

Group sessions are organised in eight residential periods of three to five weeks spread throughout the two years. In between residential periods, students work autonomously on their own research projects with the support of one-to-one tutorials, online group meetings, and peer feedback. For more information about the schedule and the delivery mode, please download the pdf.

* In this list you will find a pretty (but not entirely) complete overview of all the brilliant people who over the course since 2014 have been contributing to our collective thinking, to the growth and development of our curriculum. As one-off guest lecturers, as returning guest lecturers, as regular tutors, associate researchers, project leaders, guest curators, external examiners, coaches and respondents. By publishing this list we do not claim that all these names are still connected to our program (although with many of them we've kept the conversation going, even from a distance) - we do however want to honor the fact that each and every "tutorial" contribution has helped us shape and re-shape the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES.
